for OOP languages, it is no problem to provide RTTI as part of Object
interface (where Object is hierarchy base). to implement the same in
Haskell, we need to make Typeable automatic father of any type class

Simon, can it be implemented in GHC? this should provide us advantages
of dynamically-typed programming languages
